MG RX-178B Build Gundam Mk-II English Manual & Color Guide

MG RX-178B Build Gundam Mk-II Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released this March by Bandai was the 1/100 Master Grade RX-178B Build Gundam Mk II of Reiji from Gundam Build Fighters anime series. The Build Gundam Mk II was designed by series protagonist Sei Iori but used by Reiji. It's a variation of the iconic Mk II from the Z Gundam series. I haven't gotten time to watch the Gundam Build Fighters series but judging from the quality of the mobile suit designs coming out of the show it makes me want to wish to have time to watch it.


The MG RX-178B Build Gundam Mk II is selling for $ at Amazon, 3730 yen at Amiami, 4250 yen at HobbyLink Japan
